About This File

Retrotastic was built during a Theme Stream broadcast. If you are interested in creating themes, follow me on Twitch, or watch the videos later on YouTube.

A Catalog of past Theme Streams can be found on the forums here: https://forums.launchbox-app.com/topic/54760-retro-faerans-theme-stream-big-box-theme-creation/

This theme only works on version 10.15 and above due to its reliance on some new bindings!



I recreated my Retrotastic theme in the theme creator. This was an ambitious project, but one that was well worth it. It still has all the fun of the original theme, with over 150 platform specific backgrounds and a plethora of game specific backgrounds and graphics to play around with. This brings the theme up to a new, modern standard that includes many performance benefits. I also managed to tweak the views here and there to make the theme snappier. Please enjoy this new version, along with the COMMUNITY Theme Creator project files for you to play around with and create your own version of my theme.


Watch this theme being built:



  • Retrotastic - Theme.zip - BigBox theme. Place extracted folder in your LAUNCHBOX\Themes folder
  • Retrotastic - COMMUNITY Project files.zip - Creator Project files. Place extracted folder in your COMMUNITY\My Theme Projects folder

My all time favorite theme just got a huge update/overhaul, what a day!

This theme has it all:
It's gorgeous;
It's well optimized;
It has a lot of parts that you can customize;
It has an absurd amount of beautiful custom art made by @Scratcher.

Stop reading this and go get it! I guarantee you won't regret!

Huge thanks for @faeran and everybody that contributed to this!

One of the best themes available, when using custom art it looks even better.

Love it.
